Greatest Fantasy Cartoon of All Time?

No. Not really.

But, I will put the last 15 minutes of this old Japanese cartoon about iron age Scandinavians up against any fantasy cartoon on the market for pure, gonzo greatness. You have no idea how much I want to start statting things up for this, but I can't. I'd ruin it for you. So, go out and find it - I watched it on Netflix as The Little Viking Prince.

Later, if you're good (and if I find some time in between watching my pride and joy in her latest play and converting "one last file" for Rappan Athuk (note: not the last file, really) and writing NOD 15 and editing Blood & Treasure) I'll post the rest of Mother Goose & Goblins. If not tonight, then Sunday ('cause Saturday is Dragon by Dragon day).

Oh - and I'll swear that the person doing Horus/Hols voice in that cartoon also did Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer in the Rankin-Bass production of same.


  1. Hmm I can't find any sign of it on netflix under that title.

  2. It's on Netflix as "Little Norse Prince Valiant".

  3. That's the one. Hey I watched it two days ago - you can't expect me to remember the title forever ;)
